The money was raised during CAWLM’s annual Lady Classic golf outing, held at Timber Ridge Golf Club on Sept. 15. More than 140 lady golfers took to the greens for a day of golf and fun. All money raised during the event through a 50/50 raffle, grand prize drawing and celebrity caddy auction, went directly to the cause. The Lady Classic has benefited the Maplewood Center for the past three years. This year the outing raised a record dollar amount, making the three-year donation from CAWLM more than $11,000. The $4,500 will go toward the center’s Skills Tutor program, aimed at helping long-term guests of the center earn their high school diploma or GED.
